A platform for collaborative semantic annotation

Abstract : Data-driven approaches in computational semantics are not common because there are only few semantically annotated resources available. We are building a large corpus of public-domain English texts and annotate them semi-automatically with syntactic structures (derivations in Com-binatory Categorial Grammar) and semantic representations (Discourse Representation Structures), including events, thematic roles, named entities, anaphora, scope, and rhetorical structure. We have created a wiki-like Web-based platform on which a crowd of expert annotators (i.e. linguists) can log in and adjust linguistic analyses in real time, at various levels of analysis, such as boundaries (tokens, sentences) and tags (part of speech, lexical categories). The demo will illustrate the different features of the platform, including navigation, visual-ization and editing.
